Kayda's Soft Parts
« on: May 19, 2013, 10:06 PM »
I'm working on finding a flight suit that isn't too pricey and was wondering if anyone had ever modified a plain black martial arts uniform? Without the overlap and stuff, and with a vest on, etc. etc. to hide that it's in two pieces and overlaps in the front, would that pass CRLs?

I'd imagine it'd be way too baggy, that'd be your only real issue.

Yeah, you might be right. (The uniform I used to use for classes wasn't all that baggy, though, oddly enough.) For reference, how baggy is "too baggy" for CRLs?

Have you looked at getting medical scrubs? they are an inexpensive way of making a flightsuit, although some modification is required.

Yeah, I have. Haven't been able to find any longsleeved ones for a decent price, though. And I don't know if my sewing skills would stand up to the task of modding them...that being said, I'm always up for a challenge! Any tips on where I can find good ones?

I got mine at Wal-mart for a good price. They are short sleeved, but I plan on adding a layer underneath to make a double-sleeve effect similar to Boba's flight suit.

I like that idea. I might look into it. (The main problem might be getting black scrubs, though I can always dye them. Haha.)

You might find that dark grey will work better visually than actual black ;) Black tends to disappear in photos, you lose all the details.

Check out the trading station.

As for the Martial arts suit, Leave it alone. It will not pass.

Scrubs arrived this afternoon! Unfortunately, could only get black, so I'm gonna find a way to fade them and weather them so they're a lighter color and look less new. They seem to fit quite well, though. Next thing is trying to track down a longsleeved shirt for under it. What fabrics are acceptable for under scrubs?

I'm also working on my vest at the moment. Got some sturdy black fabric and I'm currently doing a lot of sewing. As for boots, I have a pair that looks a lot like these, but with buckles on the back, less shiny, and weathered because I wear them a lot.  :) http://www.target.com/p/adult-combat-boots/-/A-14165264 Of course, I'm going to cover the laces with armor.

For my hands, I bought a pair of mechanic gloves with no markings as far as those go.

Okay, so I have a new question! How much modding will it take to turn this into an approvable belt? Is it worth it?

 ;)  Not too much modding ..... Keep it Simple ... IMO .
I'd do little things like Solo's Greeblies .
 
But that's me ......   :rolleyes:
